empty interface panel is not sent

#1 by TRapp , Thu Mar 07, 2024 3:35 am

When I delete all content of the interface panel and send the "empty" panel to the robot, the old content will not be deleted.
I exported the "empty" panel - and the file is really empty

Then I edited the AS sourcecode in KIDE:

.INTER_PANEL_D
.END
.INTER_PANEL_TITLE
"",0
"",0

"",0
.END
.INTER_PANEL_COLOR_D
182,3,224,244,28,159,252,255,251,255,0,31,2,241,52,219,
.END
 

 



But after transfer everything with "send AS file to the robot" - the robot still has the old panel content.
After downloading a backup form the robot - I saw that the whole INTER_PANEL section was not overwritten.

It's not a big problem ... I just created an unused pilot lamp on the last page - then all the other content can be deleted.

Dear TRapp,

thank you for the report!

K-IDE cannot "delete" the interface panel from the robot. K-IDE can only send empty interface panel data to the robot like you did. The expected reaction of the controller is an empty interface panel.

To be honest, I never removed the interface panel entirely from the robot. But I did a quick test with K-Roset and got the same result.

The reason for this is the fact that K-IDE did not generate panel data entries if there is no panel data. As a result, no empty ".INTER_PANEL_D" entry is generated to be transfered to the robot and the robot get no chance to clear its interface panel.

I removed the "optimization" conditions in the K-IDE code and than it was possible to clear the interface panel. This will be fixed in the next update.
